Post COVID-19 Impact on Polyurethane Market

The COVID-19 pandemic hampered the polyurethane market by imposing government restrictions, travel restrictions, lockdowns, and the closure of factories. Because the building and construction industries were shut down, the polyurethane market suffered. Polyurethane is a versatile insulator. Rigid polyurethane foams are used to create storage devices, such as specialised coolers, in which COVID-19 vaccine vials can be kept. These are used in the global transportation of vaccines. As a result, the demand for polyurethane is expected to rise in the near future.

Recent Development

  • Coverstro planned to increase production capacity in December 2021 by establishing new thermoplastic polyurethane plants on the Shanghai site. The plant is scheduled to be finished in 2023.
  • Huntsman will open its plant in Taiwan in October 2020, along with a 3,600 square metre polyol plant and downstream polyurethanes capabilities.
  • Huntsman completed the acquisition of Icynene-Lapolla in February 2020. Huntsman will benefit from the acquisition as it expands its downstream polyurethanes business in North America.
  • Huntsman increased its polyurethane production capacity in September 2019 with the opening of a new facility in Dubai.
